Still at your service.
Don't be fooled by the name. OK, be a little fooled. The 29-inch Maxxis Minion DHR II Tire does take some basic design features from the first-generation Minion, but this is largely an all-new tire.
The original Minion DHR made a name for itself on muddy, technical DH courses around the world by simply refusing to quit, and the same can be said of the DHR II. Shoulder knobs are now borrowed from the heavy-duty Minion DHF tire, making for a wider stance than the original DHR and better cornering, and the once-separated central knobs are now practically unified, creating a paddle-like effect across the tire that notably boosts both braking and loose-ground traction. Still siped, and now ramped, the tread rolls and clears mud and grime faster than its predecessor. The 60TPI casing returns, as does EXO sidewall protection technology, which is the integration of a tough, semi-rigid fabric into the tire's sidewall that prevents both abrasion and pinch-flatting.
The 29-inch Maxxis Minion DHR II Tire comes in a 2.3-inch width only, and in the color Black.
